Go Far

Forgive yourself
For you live with yourself
Dismiss past tenseness
And live for the now

You have a perfectly
Permissive disposition
Exquisite distinction
Individuality to fulfill in an instant

Start to tell your heroes tale
With your past avails to
Passages to brave passed
Himalayas to scale

Castaway at seas to sail
Gail force breeze wails
Unyielding terrain
Unequal travail

Blazing desert plains
Hypothermic glacial nights
Accolades amass at you lap
With each flag, each sight

You keep riding
Knightly dragons slain
Castles made and break the same
As you blaze with no blazon displayed

Anomalous you remain
Stardust rebond
You belong across the sky
You've already come so far.

Steadfast And Yet Relaxed

We don't know our own strength
The toll we take
From toes, legs, torso
Abdo, throat, face

The whole framework overstrained
Over-paced behavior
Whole array misshapen
Til it erodes away

Slowly frayed, flayed daily
From greed and shame
We retain
Each bait we proceed to take

Facebook, tweets, dm's
Social media snakes
Can leave a cheap
Fleeting remark a screen away

Harming the cohesion
Our weave like yarn texture
Our coat of arms tears apart
Like polyester

Mustn't fester
Over the sorry folly of others
The effort to judge
Is much easier than to serve

So rest assured
And set forth the steps towards
Your bettering incrementally
Beckon those against that course.


Our Home

Why do we force the course,
Of source, performing "reformance",
Against the forms of nature,
Natural organisms,

Transforming terraform,
Our born worldly existence,
Insistent on controlling it,
As if it's opposition,

Consistent resistance is causing us,
Chronic sickness,
Dismissing authentic growth,
Oblivious to it's ripple effects,

It'll be a bitter pill instilled,
When it comes time for swallowing,
Our life energy starved,
From gobbling up with gluttony,

We'll swallow it like arsenic,
Poison, toxic biotics,
What it causes,
Honestly we're probably already absorbing,

Absolving all of us,
We got the disease of disregard,
The earth wants us,
To be a part of it in all of it's art,

Heartily we must accept,
Our connection,
Acknowledging our extension,
And pledge to better our collective residence.

Tilting At Windmills

We're still tilting at windmills
For the thrills it rekindles
Acting from will, attacking at will
The hilt reveals the willful

Without it victimhood
Fear materializes 
This fear of deprivement
This us or them mindset

If not triumphant I'm nothing
I can't live without the gumption
The harvest is my bounty
Without I become stunted

A runt scrounging
While they exceed and outreach
Without me, I must release cowardice
Unsheath and joust steel

Mount my steed for honor,
Democracy and valor
Against hyprocrisy, can't you see
Pronounce, avow you serfs

Usurpers, I'm the rightful colonel
Your service falls in accordance
Divide and conquer over the course
Of history I'll be rejoiced in

With boisterous applause
Marble carvings hoisted along
The roads I've tarred
Paved with blood sweat and heart

When it's all said and done
And I've become omnipotent
Above all else 
At all others hinderance

It may finally dawn on me
My own inferiority complex
Lead to encompassing conflict
And I'm left still uncontent

All I had to do was self-accept.

No Pretensions

Got to negate the case
To chase what I'm capable of
Whats attainable
Straining worst case scenario

Hysteria
Best case expectations
Is just a waste as well
Imagination does not straight foretell 

I'll navigate the netscape
Gladly stake henceforth
Furthermore with contentment
More important than moving towards

Success or prevention
No pretending, no exceptions
No head held intention
Of excellence or less then

Just moving in the direction
Of reverence and ethics
Lament pretensions
Need no end to begin.

You’re The Balance

Nothing is forever
Impermanence is the only
Certainly doesn't serve to be
Immersed gripped in holding

It isn't worth it
There was never a time it was perfect
There surely won't be
Let your imperfections surface

You're doing nothing wrong
You haven't lost some charm
Some spotless quality
To be everything to everybody

As you shouldn't be
You are who you are
Flaunt it unguarded
In stark self homage

It connects us all
Whether we're aware of it or not
Subconscious, unconcious
Authentic embodiment bonds us

We all long to shout it
So don't doubt it or shroud it
Be proud with the gifts
You have to give boundless

It balances our assorted
Absorption distortion 
Against majority proportion
Enforcement

What lay dormant before
You were contorted
With what others told you
Deemed more important

Your core knows for sure
That tingle in your pours
When you adoringly feel
Love for self be restored

Earnest and Honest

Penchant for pent up
Aggression and resentment
Hell bent on penitence
For offenses and transgressions

Against ones ends
A heavy debt, a dead load tolled
Over the shoulder bones
Holding it like the mythoic globe

Of vulnerability no ability to surpass
Atlas grasp
Passion and valiance alas
Do not reveal the path

Heeled in crap, so we don't take crap
Sad we've got it backwards
We only take it because 
We actually just make it up

Theres actually no atlas task at hand
No mandatory command
Branded or demanded
It's our own stand-alone mandate

Cultivated from past shame
Conditions fabricated
Gradually from pleasure and pain 
Dramatic intimidation

Placing self against status
Competition established
With differences and classes
That realistically just doesn't matter

Rather be free and modest
Than be the coolest or the smartest
Consumer of the products
That marginally boost our own regard

Or be the ruler of commerce and audience
All of that
Harness total dominance of laws
Like the magna carta offered

We're not honorable all days
In all ways
Caught up in small losses and gains
Not comparable to what others obtain

The sway of time will long wash away
Your made up doppelganger
But it can't knock reality
Of living earnestly and honestly always. 

To Whom DO You Identify?

People of these times
Reside to blind allegiances
With the we vs them mentality
Proud believes in

The doubt of our cohesion
In ever increasing tediums
In total disagreement
To every conceived feature

Of the competing impedance
Intolerant to intolerence
A bit oxymoronic if honest
But don't acknowledge it

It's a harsh pill to swallow
When vilifying is justified
As long as you side with me
Then we are the victimized

We have piety
In our beliefs we are righteous
So keep the rivals needs
At arms reach, our of sight

With upbringing and conditioning
It made us the winning team
Either inferior or superior
We clearly have the needs

To be carelessly free
And to live a life of glee
Even if I don't recognize
We need them to identify me.

Scaling Mountains

Difficult issues come up
Tough stuff but
It's a matter of opinion
What is considered cumbersome

What holds as momentous
Isn't unanimous
So why we waste our stamina
Adding up damages with an abacus

Flattering our judgements
Undertaking solutions with sledgehammers
To crack a nut
Statutes and acts established but

In backwards fashion
Actions and practices reactive
Don't have to act indifferent
To have acceptance impassive

Sadly bad things happen
Must we act so indignant
And dignified to gratify
Individual resistance

And erase and tear up
Like grammatical errors
Trying to categorize 
Like the encyclopedia britannica

Pulling hair right out of our scalps
To control outcomes
But how come we make ant hills
Insurmountable mountains.

Behave

Tend to rest on our laurels
Like it's all moral
To let forethought and cause
Be orchestrated by our royals,

Of oratorical and written history 
Our fore founders and traditions be
Inexplicably
Fixed rigidly,

Little heeding to meaning
Or purpose we just serve
As servants surfacing
With little to no coercion

We all discern the rowboat
Isn't propelled by it's own wake
Awoken we hold sway
The oarsman hold the pace,

Keep it straight and afloat
Know when to coast or start stroking
The founders are foundering
Letting the boat overflowing,

We're sinking or capsizing
Forecasters denied the rising
Massive tidal wave
Do we act rightly or behave.
